Ok yall, Names Rowdy, yes thats my real name >.< But anyways. Im new to the whole 240 scene and actually the whole import scene you could say. My first car was an 83 chevy silverado shortbed, with a 350 and dual exhausts, I love that little truck lol, I worked on it the first day I got it. But anyways, I come from central Texas and I just bought a 91 240sx the other day, and I kinda need some help on it, Looks like the altenator is dead, needs a new battery, new brakes and radiator hoses. But I have questions on the interior as in how to fix it >.< Thanks yall for your time!

WiSeBoi84 is on a distinguished road
Red face

Hello. I'm a noob, just saying hi. I would sell my grandmother AND any organs that I don't really need to get into drifting - I just have never had the extra cash on hand to pull it off. Right now Im rolling around in a mildly tuned 6th gen Honda Accord, dropped on Tiens, CAI, HIDs, real CF covering the power house, but that's pretty much it. Its a good daily. What I want to get my hands on is a late model s14 - so I can start budgeting towards getting sideways. I sell art and designs on the side for income, but Im just not popular enough to make regular car modificaiton and maintenance money - and I am not selling the accord to get my hands on a 240 - I need the reliability and have heard many horror stories from Coworkers, class mates, etc. about ditching reliability for performance on a budget with no backup car in a city with poor public trans. Not smart.

Let me know how some of you out there, who are drifting and doing it with dailys managed your builds and also places where I can scrape up some extra money, tips, etc. - besides the obvious, selling more art.

Here's my website if you're interested: Wasabi Concepts

why would you go after a late model s14 if your trying to pich penneys to get into drifting? just find the uglyest s13 and weld the diff and throw on some coilovers.

Hi everyone, my name is Ali. I was looking to buy a 240sx s14 for a long time and I finally got one. My friend found one near where i lived. I got a 95 240sx with 200,000 miles on it for.... $1500... Yeah I got steal... and it is in good condition too. basically its my project car. It has a stock KA24DE motor in it. My friend recommend the SR20DET swap since the KA24DE has 200,000 miles on it. A lot of people recommend to rebuild the KA24DE and turbo it. I'm still learning about the car, my friend said to join a forum, its the only way to learn and make the best decisions by all the info and feed backs from others. I know i will learn a lot from this place. thanks again.

Hello everyone. This is DJ from NorCal. Don't have a 240 yet but plan to get one soon, saving up...
A friend of mine turned me on to 240s and was gonna help me look into getting one. He passed away a few months ago in a Cycle accident. I'm trying to fulfill what we had planned.

My name is Chris and I am a new user. I recenetly bought a 1992 240sx that had a sr20det motor and a few boltons to go with. I just got it out of the shop it needed a new MAF, Intake, oil change, rear diff change, drained the fuel and put good gas in it. I am going to run through a tank of gas just to make sure all the bad gas is out and then put her on the dyno and tune it with the SAFC it came with.

safcs are crap. dont wast the time or money on a dyno. Not trying to be mean, just telling you.

Hi, I'm Robert, I live in Nashville. I currently own a '92 Aztec Red S13 and an '91Charcoal Metallic RMS13. These are my 3rd and 4th 240's in the past 5 years. I came across the forum not too long ago and figured that since I'm a member of virtually every other 240SX related forum, I might as well join.

The coupe is my SM autocross project. Its gonna receive a VQ35HR, Quaife HLSD, and Stance GR+ 3 way coilovers.... among a TON of other parts that I honestly don't have time to list. The big objective is to stomp the sh*t out of some M3's and STI's.

The fastback is my fiance's fun car and my DD since I've started the major overhaul on the coupe. nothing really nice to say about it except I paid only $900, and it's an SE. The bad news is that it's a slush box, the hatch has the typical rust holes from where the hatch had the d*mn rubber duckie spoiler, rear defogger is FUBAR'd, paint is toast, Speedometer and radio doesn't work, the body and interior is all beat to hell, and that's putting it nicely. Its an uphill fight with this car.

fisaw

Hey all. Name's fisaw. I've just revived my sisters' '95 240SX, after 1 year of non-use. just starting to get familiar with it. It's not really in great mechanical condition so I've gotta get it workin better before thinking about mods... Thus I'll probably need more mechanical help.

Oh and I live like an hour from where the car is, so that makes it annoying to work on it... grr...
